The centre has a permanent exhibition gallery on the first floor displaying, pottery, glassware, ceramics and other artefacts and on the ground floor is a thematic gallery for temporary exhibitions.

    Interactive museum inside Kowloon Park

    A good side excursion inside Kowloon Park. Can spend 1 hour or so exploring the heritage and mainly the architecture of Hong Kong

    Not much here

    Free museum in the park. It's a nice place to pop in if you're in the park already but there's not much to see. I was disappointed because we travelled a long way for not much.

Additional Information

Introduction

Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre is located in Kowloon Park and built on two former British Army barracks. The barracks were built in 1910 and used to accommodate British troops right up until the land was handed back to the Hong Kong government for public use in 1967. By preserving these two historical buildings, the Centre is also a tribute to sustainable architecture in Hong Kong. A permanent exhibition occupying approximately 1,000 square meters showcases a variety of representative artifacts, models, and interactive multimedia programs that give visitors a greater insight into Hong Kong’s rich cultural heritage.
